Rock Climbing is Sexy
by Sara, TheClimberGirl
Apparently, climbing is sexy. Climbing is "the sexiest sport from a female perspective," according to a study reported in the book "59 Seconds: Think a Little, Change a Lot" by Richard Wiseman.
A whopping 57% of women find climbing "attractive" in members of the opposite sex. Nearly as interesting to me, as a female climber... 41% of men state that the activity of climbing makes a woman more attractive.

There are definitely unsexy times in climbing.
But, I digress...
According to the study:
"The work involved over 6000 people indicating which sporting activities would make a member of the opposite sex more attractive. Results revealed that 57% of women found climbing attractive, making it the sexiest sport from a female perspective. This was closely followed by extreme sports (56%), football (52%), and hiking (51%). Bottom of their list came aerobics and golf, with just 9% and 13% of the vote respectively.
In contrast, men were most attracted to women into aerobics (70%), followed by yoga (65%), and going to the gym (64%). Bottom of their list came bodybuilding (5%), rugby (6%), and golf (18%)."

|As a male climber I feel that female climbers are sexy on a physical level because of the shape a climber needs to be in. But there is an attaction to female climbers because they understand climbing, which most women dont. This intern adds to their attraction.|
|I agree with the above. I'm attracted to female climbers. They are usually very fit (have to be), and generally like the same challenges and being outdoors.|
